While a significant proportion of backpacking blogdom is off to Scotland for the TGO Challenge, next week I shall be heading to the Lake District. Originally I was going this week, but for various reasons I had to delay. At the moment I have two plans: a preferred plan and a back-up plan. Next week is the Keswick Mountain Festival, which may impinge on my plans, in which case, I will go somewhere quieter.
As some have commented in relation to the TGOC, the weather looks a little cool, so I am pondering gear choices. I will be taking the Scarp 1 definitely. I shall be returning to Paramo as well, which should be well suited to the conditions. The key thing to remember is tea bags!
